Hanoi, 7 September 2020 - Standard Chartered Bank today hosted the Vietnam deep dive webminar themed “Capitalising on Vietnam’s investment opportunities post COVID-19”, drawing senior leaders of businesses and organisations across Asia, Europe and the US.

 Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung and Governor of State Bank of Vietnam Le Minh Hung graced the event with opening addresses and joined the panel discussion on the strategies to capitalise on Vietnam’s investment opportunities post COVID-19.

 The panel was also participated by Soren Bech, General Manager of RB Health Vietnam and C. K. Tong, CEO of BW Industrial Development, and moderated by Nirukt Sapru, CEO of Standard Chartered Bank Vietnam and ASEAN & South Asia Cluster Markets, and Nguyen Xuan Thanh, Independent Non-Executive Director of Standard Chartered Bank Vietnam.

 “Given its strong fundamentals of a young, dynamic and tech-savvy population, a growing domestic market, a rising middle class and an open economy, Vietnam continues to offer exciting investment opportunities. Many start-ups and multinational corporations have set up their operations in Vietnam to leverage its strategic connectivity and proximity to Asian economies as a gateway to grow their business. While COVID-19 is likely here to stay for a while, it should not prevent us from exploring the new opportunities that Vietnam can offer and attempt new strategies to build and sustain growth in the country.” said Nirukt Sapru, CEO Vietnam and ASEAN & South Asia Cluster Markets, Standard Chartered Bank.

The webminar is part of the Standard Chartered ASEAN Series, which was kick started by the virtual Standard Chartered ASEAN Business Forum 2020 in late August. The Forum was officiated by Prime Minister of Vietnam Nguyen Xuan Phuc and attracted 4,700 participants globally.
